Day Habilitation

Day Habilitation services provide meaningful activities for people to engage in during the day, which includes but not limited to: continuing education, skill acquisition, volunteerism, cultural and recreational pursuits, and socialization. Overall goals of the program include regular community inclusion and the opportunity to build toward a productive community experience. Many activities are provided throughout local communities. We currently operate sites in Granville, Glens Falls, Hudson Falls, and Slingerlands.

Nursing, nutritional and behavioral health supports are offered.
